Saw this on another board and I liked it, thought I'd share it since it fits....
BASHERS NEVER BASH A BAD STOCK. Watch the board for stocks with no potential. They never have any bashers . Bashers only go after stocks that are going upwards or have excellent potential to go up. Bashers get left behind, so they want to bring the price down.
BASHERS ALWAYS BRING UP OLD NEWS THAT YOU HAVE HEARD MANY TIMES. New startup companies always have a few bits of bad news. The basher will post this over and over again. The stupid basher will try to make the old news a bit fresher to try to fool you.
BASHERS POST MANY TIMES A DAY. They try to wear you out. They comment on everything, every other post, and can answer every question. THEY KNOW IT ALL! There is no positive comment they won't bash. They try to control the board. True longs may have to address the bashers or they will appear to the newbies as being the people with all the information.
BASHERS WILL LIE TO YOUR FACE. Never trust a basher . The truth on startup companies is that many mistakes are made and losses happen. The basher will try to make you believe all startup companies make a profit, release financials every quarter and all aspects of the business run smoothly. THIS IS NOT TRUE. THE BASHERS LIE TO YOU. Startup companies can go years without profits, financials and good business, this is the nature of the beast.
The bashers know YOU CAN'T VERIFY THEIR STATEMENTS. That's why they make the statements they do.
The bashers PLAY ON YOUR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE. They can lie about information and you couldn't know the difference (unless you have done your assessment of the company and know the truth and facts).
Ignore bashers and pumpers.
Rely on management being transparent, speaking the truth, and keeping their word.
IF management issues puff PRs.Issues PRs after hours and on Fridays, doesn't file on time, then there is a problem.
Right now, we are relying on waiting for them to come through on the April 1 date for a partnership or deal providing them with a grow license.
IF they meet that promise, and Vodus is a deal,we are golden. The MJ business is golden and do NOT get distracted by some BS, potential, cancer drug. That is just a distraction,which I am concerned about;Why create a distraction.
For you young, inexperienced investors, bashers and pumpers doNOT impact anything.It's all in their own and your own minds.
Let';s see what the company actually does by April 1.
Ignoring a problem doesn't make it go away. Identify and deal with it. Bashers and pumpers are dangerous, and honestly I feel like they should be prosecuted on grounds of fraud and or at least slander/libel.
Prosecution isn't realistic, so I really don't want to debate that, but each person on this message board should take responsibility for the things they say, and to work to correct the overly positive(pumpers) and negative(bashers) statements said by others.
Maybe Yahoo! would be good enough to add a voting system in addition to the thumbs so people can vote if a statement is out of line or not. That way the quality of the statement is judged by peers, separate from agreeing with or against the statement. It might help clear up some of the BS flying around...
I disagree with you about the cancer drug. I dont think they are causing a distraction with it. Are they not even supposed to mention it? It's part of their company and in the PR they mentioned some potential that it has. Its not the meatof the company, but I'm glad they talked about it and gave some info about the drug. Now, if they are trying to use the cancer drug to cover up problems with finding a partner, thats not good. But as of now, I think everything looks good still.
You mention April 1st as a date of partnership, more like a deadline. Is that your own deadline? I am giving them until the week after the Healh Show to ake a deal, I guess that would be April 11th. If there's no PR about a deal by Monday morning April 14th at opening bell, I'll be selling and reinvesting in one of a few others I keep my eye on regularly. But I fully expect there to be great news by then and I fully expect to ride EAPH for a long time.
